Another example of a simple fraud which, in this case promises council tax reductions. This type of scam can apply to anything and the key is to always be wary of any unsolicited calls, especially ones which ask for up front payments and make promises. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is
the organisation that deals with appeals on council tax banding is the valuation office and if anyone thinks they are paying too high a band, they should contact the valuation office themselves. These sorts of scams that demand upfront payment for goods, services or financial gains that never materialise seem to be on the rise and I would urge people to be vigilant.
